Golfweek Staff reports the case was thrown out Feb. 1** and the brushes are still used on Atlanta Athletic Club's mowers.
The manufacturer of those brushes, Rod Lingle of GreensPerfection, took exception and filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Athletic Club, Mangum and the PGA of America.
That suit was dimissed Feb. 1 in Desoto County (Miss.) Circuit Court. Terms were not disclosed.
“We felt a responsibility to our current customer’s concerns, as well as potential customers, to make sure they knew our product was safe and effective,” Dingle said in a statement. “GreensPerfection brushes are incapable of damaging any greens in the way represented by the defendants.”
**The case was dismissed because it was settled, something not noted in the report.
